White Papers

In this white paper, we will review the selection, processing, shelf life, nutrition, and practical aspects of the use of evaporated and low moisture apple products in snacks, bars, cereals and bakery products.

While fruits have always projected a healthy halo, a growing body of research indicates the daily consumption of fruits and vegetables can improve our mental well-being or aid with cognition.

Fruit ingredients, from drum-dried powders and flakes to purées and concentrates, can aid and extend shelf life in baking applications and other food systems. Fruit ingredients present formulators with another tool in their arsenal when seeking clean label solutions.

Many industries would envy the hard cider industry’s double digit sales increases for the last three years and counting. Meeting consumer demand for this popular beverage requires a reliable supply of high-quality apple juice or other fruit juices with the appropriate attributes for cider brewing.

Antioxidants, fiber and clean label implications — these and a host of other benefits make fruit powders, concentrates and purées attractive ingredients for pet food or treat formulations. In addition, consumers’ top concerns when purchasing pet food include a desire for foods processed in the U.S. and cleaner, simpler product profiles.

The industry push for clean labels shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed, its rapid acceleration is fueled by consumer demand for foods formulated with simple, more natural ingredients whenever possible.

  • Like most people, I want 2020 to just start over with a completely different reality. Unlike the 196,000 people in the U.S. who have died from Covid-19, I have been fortunate. I’m only familiar with the fear, paranoia, isolation, social separation and shortages of many of life’s staples. Seven months without a hair-cut and we are persevering. I feel guilty for not being able to help research the cure or comfort someone in need. At Tree Top, research and development activity is crazy busy. Just to illustrate what I mean...READ MORE

  • connecting virtually at petfood forum 2020

    The beauty of virtual conferences like the upcoming PetFood Forum Connect is that you can attend every session you want, take notes sitting at a desk, and even re-watch something if you want without leaving the comfort of home or taking off your bunny slippers (not that I have bunny slippers.) You don’t have to decide between a trend session and a scientific one or product development and regulatory. You can watch them all live or recorded. It’s a smorgasbord of information, and you get to sample anything and everything you want. READ MORE
